100% mercerized Egyptian cotton

Provence, one of our signature yarns, is a mercerized Egyptian cotton that knits into a strong and beautiful fabric. Egyptian cotton has two qualities that make it a great cotton yarn: a very long staple (fiber) length and a small diameter. The long staple gives the yarn strength and sheen; and the delicate diameter means that it spins into a soft, smooth yarn. Mercerizing makes a yarn that is stable, takes dye well, and is less likely to shrink.

Provence is perfect for all of your warmer weather garments and accessories. The generous yardage makes this yarn go a long way.

Made in Greece.

NOTE: In 2013, Provence changed to a 50 gr. / 102 yard hank. Originally, yardage was 256 yds./125 gr. skein weight. Sometime between 2002-06, the yardage went to 205 yds./100 grams. Please adjust yardage on the stash page and don’t add another entry.
